Which roller-furler has the open-body drum and no bearings?

I remember seeing it advertised somewhere as the simplest and most reliable roller-furler made. Could have sworn it was called the Cruise Furl or something similar, but can't find it anymore. Need to replace the piece of crap furler I'm using for my Staysail.

I think they all have bearings. This might be what you're thinking of.
Furlers, performance propellers, sailing gear

Alado

It is made in Brazil. They have a U.S. rep.

Thanks Meandercp, that's exactly what I was thinking of. CDI's flexible furler looks like good equipment, too, and they are comparatively priced. Nice to have options!
